Remembering Thomas Gilliard (satellit)

I’m sad to report that Thomas Gilliard (satellit), who was a
valued member of the QA team for many years, passed away last week. His
wife contacted me with the news. Thomas was a regular and reassuring
presence at QA and blocker review meetings and ran many thousands of
tests since he first joined the team in 2009. He was particularly
dedicated to testing our Sugar builds. We’ll miss him.

Heroes of Fedora 23 bonus: Test Days

Heroes of Fedora 23 bonus: Test Days

Heroes of Fedora 23 bonus content – a quick post on Test Day stats.

I realized that in Heroes of Fedora 23 Alpha I promised statistics on Test Days in the Fedora 23 Final post, but forgot to include them when writing it! The Fedora 24 HoF posts will start up soon, but in the mean time, here are the Fedora 23 Test Day stats as a little bonus!

‘Overall fixed %’ is an approximation of what proportion of the bugs reported as part of Test Day events were ‘fixed’. Calculating it involves some subjective choices that have been discussed on the test@ mailing list before, but it’s a reasonable approximation. These stats are generated by this ‘testdays’ tool.

Events: 6
Tests: 318
Bugs: 29
Testers: 28
Overall fixed %: 56.5217391304

Heroes of Fedora (HoF) – F23 Alpha

Heroes of Fedora is back

Heroes of Fedora is back. First, we’re looking at Fedora 23 Alpha.

Fedora 23 was released recently, and as is now traditional, it’s time we celebrate all the fine folks who contributed to testing with Heroes of Fedora! Heroes of Fedora (HoF) features some exciting statistics analyzing major areas of contributions. Your regular host Roshi is busy at the moment, so I’m standing in.

As usual we’ll be looking at three major areas of contribution: updates testing, release validation, and bug reports, across the three release milestones – Alpha, Beta, and Final. In this post we’ll be covering Alpha. In the last post, we’ll also see numbers from the Fedora 23 Test Days. There are other important areas QA covers, so these posts don’t necessarily include everyone who helped out, but they’re the areas we can easily generate statistics for.
